Slim, Stranded Flat Patch Cables
Our Flat Ethernet Patch cables are only 1.5mm thick, giving plenty of room for proper ventilation and air circulation. It is great advantage over normal cat patch cables for flexibility as they add more bulk to your workspace.
Built with Sound Flexibility to Withstand Repetitive Bending and Numerous Mating Cycles
Our Flat Cat6 and Flat Cat7 Ethernet Cables are composed of 4 pairs of stranded conductors, protected with special, flexible PVC jackets. RJ45 connector plugs (gold-plated) terminate the ends of the flat patch cord. Minimum mating cycles is as high as 750 cycles, ensuring longer cable life than other brands.
Your Ultimate Space-Saving Flat Patch Cable
OTSCABLES manufactures Cat6, Cat6A and Cat7 Flat Patch cables with an area of 15.84 sq. mm, with about 28% of space saved by each flat patch cable as compared with the traditional patch cable.
Features Numerous Network, Voice and Broadband Applications
Our Flat Patch Cords wiring conforms with TIA and EIA 568B standards and are used in many network, voice and broadband applications such as 10Base-T, 100Base-T, 1000Base-T, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet.
These Premium Ethernet Flat Patch cables delivers high-data transfer rates and better network performance intended for hubs, switches, routers, network adapters, patch panels, DSL or cable modems, under-the-carpet installations wall outlet and other computer networking applications.
Offered in Multiple Cable Lengths at Affordable, China-Priced Deals
OTSCABLES offers a variety of cable lengths to choose from ranging from 0.3m (1FT) to 1m (3FT) and 1.5m (5FT), 2m (7FT), 3m (9FT) and 5m (15FT) cables - all of which are at a China-priced bargain.
We Carry Various Color Options
Different cable applications would oftentimes be easily distinguishable with different cable color schemes. OTSCABLES has a variety of flat patch cable colors that you can choose from, such as Gray, Black, Green, Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange, White, Purple and Pink.
White cables presents the most optimum solutions for medical equipment as they camouflage into the commonly white paint of the medical decor. Thus, contaminants can be easily seen on the cable surface and can be easily maintained.
AV and Networking Runs
Black cables are optimum solutions for AV and networking runs as the black color easily hides into the shadows.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are Flat Patch Cables Composed of Stranded Wires? What is the difference between Stranded and Solid Cables?
Whether it is Cat5e, Cat6, Cat6A or Cat7, it can be classified as solid or stranded.
What are Stranded Cables?
For stranded cables, they are made of conductors that are finely twisted together. They are built to be more flexible as each twisted wires tend to experience equal pressure when subjected to a force. Stranded cables are most commonly used as patch cables as these frequently experience bending and require higher cycles. As such, they carry the following characteristics:
- Transmission distance is shorter.
- Attenuation is higher.
- Repetitive bending would not easily break the cable.
- Cost may be relatively higher than solid cables
What are Solid Cables?
Solid cables is conveniently used in most backbone installations/horizontal cabling in ceilings, conduit, plenums, risers or walls. Flexibility is not much of a concern n backbone installations, but rather its ability to withstand conditions in these areas. Solid cables are made to be rigid as they are composed of conductors each with a single copper. As such, they carry the following characteristics:
- Used to transmit network signals for long distances
- Attenuation is lower
- Built for rigidity
- Lower Cost
As Flat Patch Cables are often used for cramped up spaces requiring flexibility, smaller stature and higher mating cycles than traditional patch cables and bulk cables, stranded wires are more appropriate to use for its construction.
